Website Accessibility Policy

The website is an affiliate site of the Government of Prince Edward Island. It is the brand and primary online platform for the Health Promotion Unit, Chief Public Health Office, Department of Health and Wellness. Its primary purpose is to share educational information, research, data, resources and tools to support individuals and communities across PEI to “live well”. Live Well PEI and the Government of PEI is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are making every effort to make our new website accessible and easy to use by following the available standards and guidelines.

Website Standards

Most Government departments and organizations will be required to make their internet websites and web content conform to the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines ("WCAG").

All new web pages published on should conform to WCAG 2.0 Level A (subject to some limited exceptions) to the greatest extent possible.


While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
